Happy June my #SmartisSexy loves!
Just as you got used to seeing flowers bloom everywhere, our epic Californian superbloom had to make way for the welcoming of its more carefree, slightly less romantic seasonal counterpart– Summer. As the heat slowly seduces your best summertime pieces out of the closet, everyone knows your best accessory is that book you carry with you to the beach, the park, the café. Summer won’t happen without a good book in tow.

Thank you for nominating me on behalf of Smart is Sexy to help support and bring awareness to ALS. So naturally in true Cali style, especially being a company from Malibu, California – I took the challenge to where the sun, iconic palm trees and freeeeeeezing cold pacific water meet to show my support. As California continuously battles a drought we thought it would be smart to use the freezing ocean water for the challenge as to not waste any water while remaining authentic to the freezing temperature the challenge called for.

Hello Smart is Sexy loves!
Today, is one of those days, for whatever reason that gets me thinking about the simpler things in life. I recently wrote about how to let things go and how they can affect you less if you consider every moment just a passing memory. Because ultimately that is just what they are. How they affect you is something else, and that is what we try and deal with every day.

Sometimes our hair needs a little TLC, more than the ordinary shampoo, rinse, deep conditioner, satin pillowcase…I’m talking about some fruits and veggies!!!
Whaaaa????? No i’m not drunk, I wrote that right. Guys can do this too, but hair long enough to pass your ears really benefit from it the most, so gentleman- with those gorgeous manes this is for you too, I’ve seen you! I don’t know where you are hiding but listen up too!
